James Cameron ‘astonished’ to learn there really was a Titanic
Director of long films, James Cameron, has spoken of his ‘astonishment’ at learning there really was an actual ship, called the Titanic, which also sank after hitting an iceberg.
Cameron wrote and directed a tragic film about a similarly named boat in 1997, which took people on an interminable journey that made them wish they’d stayed at home or gone bowling.
In a complete coincidence, Cameron is now attempting to raise the wreck by releasing it in 3D at the same time as the real disaster’s 100th anniversary. It’s a move which has angered relatives of Titanic’s victims and survivors of the film’s first showing.
‘We’d like to see the wreck granted ‘protected’ status to stop the director from dredging it up and messing with it.’ said Mark Kermode, adding ‘I just wish we’d thought of doing something similar for the Star Wars trilogy.’Click to send this story to a friend
